As many as four nonlocal businesses will send temporary medical staff to Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton and Naval Medical Center San Diego in the years ahead.
The four businesses will compete for task orders awarded by Naval Medical Logistics Command of Fort Detrick, Maryland. Work will continue through 2017.
The U.S. Navy needs technologists, technicians and assistants, as well as workers in allied health.
Businesses providing the temporary staff will be Donald L. Mooney Enterprises LLC, Magnum Opus Technologies Inc. and Vesa Health & Technology Inc., all of San Antonio, as well as Loyal Source Government Services LLC of Orlando, Florida. The work went to disabled veteran-owned small businesses. Some 26 vendors bid on the work.
Task orders under the contract could be worth up to $130.4 million, with 35 percent of the work going to San Diego County hospitals.
